Any views on the club at Chew Valley - what are the main classes and whats the racing like? Is it a friendly club?

The main classes are Laser, Solo and Flying Fifteens and a handicap fleet that covers all else including a fair number of 200s. I reckon the Weds evening Laser fleet is possibly the biggest fleet in the country, with a standard to match.

It is vibrant and thriving in a beautiful location, with a decent sized bit of water and, uniquely amongst sailing clubs, the members are all stunningly attractive ;)

Or try Bristol Corinthian, just over the Mendips. I can confirm the members aren't as attractive though.

At Chew? 1035, but all numbers are reviewed annually at Chew.
